One of my readers asked me if I would do a post on how I style my hair. So here it is Nan, finally…
Here is my Hair Styling Routine…
I wash my hair with L’Oreal Volumetry Shampoo and then use a little Bumble and Bumble Coco de Creme Conditioner. I have to condition my hair whenever I wash it because it gets so dry. I don’t wash my hair everyday because frankly it looks better when it’s a little dirty. Every other day is my usual routine.
I towel dry my hair and then put a couple of drops of the Altura Caviar CC Cream on the ends of my hair. This is such a great product because it conditions, but it makes my hair so soft and shiny without weighing it down (I sound like a hair commercial!).
I then put a little of the Living Proof Perfect Hair Cream in, especially around the sides and back of my hair. In order to get my hair to flip a little this is the magic that makes it happen. I then spray a some Fructis Root Amp on the top of my head at the root.
After I have all of the product in my hair I dry it with my Babyliss Blow Dryer, which I swear by. I have had it forever and it still works like it is brand new. I start with drying the sides and back of my hair holding the flip, while drying it. I really don’t use my round brush much, except if I need a little extra lift at the crown of my head. I mostly coax my hair in the direction I want it to flip with my fingers while I am drying it.
After it is dry, I use about a dime size amount of the L’Oreal Architecture Paste to hold the flips in place and to take the frizz out. This paste is amazing! After I get everything in place and how I want it, I lightly spray my whole head with the Elnett Hair Spray.
I have done this whole rigmarole for so long and so often that I don’t even think about all the steps involved, there are more than I thought!
I had long hair for half my life, but once I cut it short I really couldn’t go back. I have had this haircut for years. I do miss being able to pull my hair into a pony tail sometimes, but it just wasn’t that flattering on me. I think I found the hair style for me.
I hope you enjoyed learning about how I style my hair. Let me know what you think and I would love to hear your hair styling tips!
